The Imperial Conglomerate of Arkbergen is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Supreme Executive Director with an even hand, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, ubiquitous missile silos, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 15.219 billion Arkbergenians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Labyrinth. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Arkbergenian economy, worth a remarkable 4,407 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 289,588 Credits, with the richest citizens earning 6.7 times as much as the poorest.

Unshaven men are viewed with suspicion in courts of law, stockbrokers dream of getting rich by writing textbooks, sales of pregnancy testing kits are booming, and recognizing the Arkbergenian flag qualifies you for citizenship. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arkbergen's national animal is the Black Owl, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Occult Cabal.

Arkbergen is ranked 170,634th in the world and 13th in Sovereign Corporate League for Most Extreme, scoring 12.11 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
